Want To Solve Disease Outbreaks? There’s An App For That

ATLANTA (February 19, 2013)—The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a free app for the iPad called "Solve the Outbreak" that allows users to run through fictional outbreaks and make such decisions as whether to quarantine a village or talk to those who are sick.

The CDC said the app was designed in-house and wouldn't give an estimate for development costs.

The agency said it is using social media to educate the public about diseases and to promote an appreciation for public health work.

The app went live this week.
